BLOGGER IS REALLY HAVING A HARD TIME THIS WEEK, NEW POSTS ARE NOT SHOWING , EDITS ARE NOT COMING UP....I HOPE THEY FIX IT SOON, BLOGGERS ARE IMPORTANT


Watergate Summer is Not the Only Blog that is having trouble this week. Many of us perdicted this summer, that there would be blogger trouble by Fall.Bloggers are an Important part of this Election Cycle, for spreading the truth, and when the MSM has been censoring what we see on so many issues, the Financial Crisis ( look at CNBC night schedule- they did away with the Foreign Coverage), and IKE Coverage- Limited Footage shown of LINEs of people suffering as they wait for AID, and Hardly any footage of Galveston seen.Bloggers are really covering so many Issues right now- they are an important Journalistic Entity...valuable.

It is MOSTLY my Posts about McCain and Palin that are not posting or are being Altered- really Perplexing ? Anyone else having this trouble ? ( They are not even showing up on my dashboard). Let me know if you are having trouble too ?

{{I hope Blogger gets this Problem Fixed ASAP, ..we need them to Help Save Our Democracy....So Much is happening and at stake}}}

You're not the first to complain that certain kinds of posts aren't getting through.

It could be intentional blocking or could just be poorly configured and maintained servers.

You might make sure and save off the text before you submit, so you don't lose your work.

Is that a photo of Mary Pickford?

I have one word, Enigma: Wordpress.

HelenWheels said...

I want to move to wordpress but when I imported my blog it didn't bring my videos!! DOes WordPress let you block single users? I can't figure out why Blogger doesn't have that feature. Wouldn't it be great?

enigma4ever said...

Helen:::
I know you need blogger...write to Poet again- he knows how to do it...

Chris::
I know I know...but I like Blogger- except sometimes when there is trouble...and I have too many blogs with them- I have no idea how to move all of them...oh well, we will see what happens...

Christopher said...

Wordpress lets you add the IP address of the person you want to block.

The blocked IP addresses are stored in a column for storage.

I don't recall importing YouTube videos. It was too long ago for me to remember.

All I know is, I can't imagine going back to Blogger.

HelenWheels said...

Christopher, I was actually able to block the IP address using this tool called IP Blocker. However, what the sneaky trolls do is subscribe to your blog and when they get an email with the link to comments, they just use that to comment and it doesn't register on sitemeter, and I think also then the IP blocker doesn't work OR they install software that hides their IP.

In any case, all my trolls know how to comment on my site and get there w/out being blocked or detected by sitemeter. I think I must have the most devoted trolls on all the web.

I moved to WordPress and I love it. It even has a setting where it can import all of your posts and labels from Blogger in a matter of minutes. :-)

HelenWheels said...

I first did that a few months ago, but it doesn't seem to "update" import very well & I ended up with no videos... but I still might do it.

Gryphen said...

Enigma the Blogger upgrade may solve your problems as well.

I know you are very resistant to upgrading but it may help to solve many of your current difficulties.

enigma4ever said...

gryphen::
actually people that did the upgrade are even having the trouble with blogger- actually even more than me..thanks- that is not the solution this time- no it is mostly about Palin and McCain- like Blogger is Moderating or Filtering..

but thanks


rj, and chris..yeah I know I know I should look at wordpress..in the mean time ...I was just curious if other bloggers were and are having troubles- I know they are...I have been getting emails all day on this..

Hang in there Helen...

D.K. Raed said...

As of this afternoon, my blogger problems are better. But now I'm still leery of any online editing/updating because the whole post tends to disappear. I hope your problems clear up soon, too. But yeah, funny, for me it was anything with "Mc" in the title!!!

D.K. Raed said...

oops, I spoke too soon. I just checked my blog -- an image I added to my current post HOURS ago has disappeared. The image was the Vermont state seal. It was there for hours, and now it's just gone! I'm afraid to even look at the "edit posts" because that's when everything got screwy yesterday.

X. Dell said...

Helen, you need a plugin for videos on WordPress. They work fine, actually, and you don't have to import or embed anything.

Enigma, you say your posts are altered. How?

I've had a brief spell when my blog--and a number of others--were somehow listed as spam. I'd hate to feed paranoia, but considering the recent hacking that's going on, one can't dismiss the possibility of hanky-panky.

skippy said...

enigma my darling i don't think it has anything to do w/the kind of posts we are writing, it's just technical glitches.

i suggest you copy and paste all your posts onto a word processing document before you save or publish them, in case blogger eats your posts. this is what i do when things are hinky, like now.

yesterday i posted something in the afternoon and it actually published in the previous day's group of posts.

but you know my motto...

blogger: you get what you pay for.

enigma4ever said...

ahhhh skippy you wise soul....
and of course it would eat my Palin or McCoot posts...since 75% of what I blog is them...sillly me...

yeah..we get what we pay for ;-)

( actually I kind of like blogger for an old half blind soul like me- it works....)

Oh well...we will get there...thanks..

enigma4ever said...

Xdell:
I don't know what a Plugin is ??
hmmm,....

and so when I say I am losing stuff I am not kidding-
whole passages and updates and editing has vanished...really odd...
and I have checked it and then an hour later- gone...

R.J. said...

Not only can you switch to WP for free, but for $10 a year you can register your own URL.

Be careful, though. WP's drawback is that when you register the URL you have to use your real info and it could come up on a WHOIS search.

That's why I used a fake addy. LOL

HelenWheels said...

Yes X.Dell I remember Monkey Monkerstein's blog was down temporarily... I haven't had major problems, guess I'm lucky.

HelenWheels said...

R.J. I know & I have many domains already I could use... I really should make the jump.

enigma4ever said...

you should do it ;-)

Fran said...

*****You've been given an award!!!*****

Christopher said...

Enigma,

You've been given two awards!

Distributorcap said...

enigma -- you have the best threads

i want to switch to wordpress but i am so afraid of losing stuff or not linking or whatever since i am a techno loser

MandT said...

Looks like you have techno glitches---similar to the ones we frequently have with Firefox and/or BlogSpot. But, you bring up a VERY important topic---Blog censorship. If big Bidness/Gov can truly pull off this massive 2 trillion dollar debt fraud it's only a matter of time before they set their sights on controlling the Internet. Actually, its already started with spoors of advertising and propo plants.

Christopher said...

DCap,

Wordpress lets you import everything.

I started on Blogger, hated it and switched to Wordpress and they have a feature that brings everything over.

enigma4ever said...

I have End of Summer Cold so between my cement head...and my cold medicine...and feeling like a slug.....thanks for all the comments folks...


Chris::
Wordpress should hire you- you are a great ad man for them....

mandt::
I am worried that there is some kind of censorhip going on- the posts I lost were not about soup or gardening...it was odd...

Dcap::
me too, I hate learning something new.and worried I would lose stuff,,,,I also have way too many blogs to move ( like 13 ? ) ..oye...

fran:::
oh thanks...again some thing I probally don't deserve....but thanks...
